Description

The fiercely independent, untamed woman of the old West -- the cowgirl -- seems to most people a topic more of fiction than real fact. But the West was indeed populated with strong-willed women who worked and played as men did in the saddles of their favorite bucking broncoes -- women whose sacrifices, hard work, and can-do attitude helped build a nation. "Cowgirls" celebrates this previously overlooked aspect of the Western experience by bringing together their stories, including their own thoughts about being cowgirls.
